Is reading on a Kindle or electronic device really the same as reading a regular paper book?

0

There has been some research to indicate that readers of Kindle or other such electronic devices are less able to recall information when compared to readers of physical books. One study showed that when tested Kindle readers were less able to recall details regarding plot, characters, and setting when compared to physical book readers. Another study found that students who studied from a physical textbook, rather than a PDF copy viewed on a computer screen, scored better when given comprehension tests afterwards. None of this is conclusive and more research is needed in this area.
